Android USB Tethering in UBUNTU 12.04

I was struggling to use the internet connection of my Android in my laptop. I
searched on google and fond that Ubuntu recongnize it automatically if USB
tethering is enabled on the connected Android phone. Then I tried to enable the
USB modem interface usb0 using following command:

it gave me following error:

Ignoring unknown interface usb0=usb0.

Then I checked the file /etc/network/interfaces. I found there is no entry for
usb0. I added following lines at the end of the file:

and again tried the above command but this time it gave me following message:

Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service smbd reload

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the reload(8) utility, e.g. reload smbd

Then I tried following command and was able to use internet on my laptop.
